    I guess you all need a little push? Then i'll give you a little one, this battle was part of the Mahdist War.

    Oh in which case it is the destruction of the Khartoum relief column... Abu Klea I think it was? I don't remember now.

    Thats right! The British won a crushing victory but failed to relive Khartoum which resulted in the Mahdi rule of Sudan for the next 13 years. I daresay that the Birtish public blamed Gladstone for the debacle, hence his resignation.

    I will guess this is a WW1 battle in Africa by the looks of it, I cannot pinpoint exactly how but I think this is the battle of Ngomano.

    Battle of Dunbar. Very characteristic New Model Army helmets.

    This shouldn't be too hard (i.e. it would be really bad to get this wrong )
